The Touhill offers quality arts and entertainment from across the spectrum of the performing arts genres.
The facility serves as an academic laboratory for UMSL students in classes at the College of Fine Arts and Communication. These theater, music and dance students have the opportunity to learn and perform in the very same space that hosts some of the most talented and recognizable professional performers in their fields.
The Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis creates opportunities for the people of our region to experience, appreciate and embrace the transformational power of the performing arts. It is a welcoming place, a leading cultural partner in our community and a symbol of this University’s commitment to integrate education, innovation and excellence.

Touhill Ticket Donation
The Touhill is happy to support community charitable efforts whenever possible. We have a limited number of tickets available for donation in any given month. Typically requests will be held until about six weeks out from a charitable event. At that time a notice will be sent as to whether or not a donation can be made. The typical donation is for two tickets to an event at the Touhill happening within the two months following the charitable event.
Because we receive hundreds of donation requests each season, we have established guidelines to determine which requests will be considered and which requests have priority. The Touhill will only consider requests for charitable organizations that support artistic organizations, direct arts education, are based in North County, and requests made directly by members of the UMSL campus community.
Priority for donations will be:
1. Personal requests from the UMSL campus community (faculty, staff, students, volunteers) on behalf of a charitable organization
2. Programs that directly encourage and support arts education
3. Programs that support artistic programs and organizations
4. Other requests from North County based charities
